What you should know about mesh networking
How mesh networking kits like the D-Link Covr can solve your Wi-Fi woes.
Should you get a mesh networking kit? If you have WiFi dead spots that you can’t seem to solve, then the answer is yes.
In theory, a single modern router can cover up to around 2,000 square feet. But in real life, walls, electronics, and even furniture can block Wi-Fi signals. It’s why many of us struggle to get fast and stable Wi-Fi, even in smaller apartments.
A mesh networking kit works slightly differently from traditional routers. Instead of relying on a single router to cover the entire home, a mesh kit uses multiple ‘hubs’ placed throughout the home. These hubs communicate with each other and create a Wi-Fi ‘mesh’ to envelop the home. That’s why mesh networks can cover a wider area than a one router.
There are other benets to using mesh kits. D-Link’s Covr mesh networking kits, for example, are easy to set up and use. Unlike using a secondary router to create a second network, for example, the Covr hubs use a single wireless name (SSID) so that your devices don’t have to jump from network to network as you move through the home.
The Covr kits are also pre-paired out of the box, so you don’t have to worry about complicated setups. Just plug them in. A friendly app will help you congure the Covr hubs so you get the best coverage. The Covr kits make advanced technology easy.
D-Link Smart Steering technology, for example, will seamlessly connect your devices to the strongest Wi-Fi signal available, and you won’t even notice any changes. Dynamic Adaption automatically directs your devices to the best Wi-Fi channel, avoiding congestion and ensuring the fastest possible connections.
